This is part three of a four-part series on the rules of YNAB (the budgeting software we use). Rule Three is “roll with the punches.” While we absolutely love the YNAB software, these rules can be applied to any budget tool you may be using. (If you need a budgeting tool, check out our YNAB review or sign up for our newsletter and get our budget spreadsheet as a free download.)
In a recent discussion with some co-workers about budgeting, the topic of Murphy’s Law came up. If you’re not familiar, Murphy’s Law states:
Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
Not the most positive thinking, but in this broken world that we live in, sometimes things don’t go as planned. And what you decide in those moments will determine your financial future. Will you compound your problems, or stop the bleeding and move forward?
